The Story of Miss Moppet is a tale about teasing, featuring a kitten and a mouse, that was written and illustrated by Beatrix Potter and is book 10 in the Tales of Peter Rabbit & Friends series and is intended as an introduction to reading for early readers.

Miss Moppet, the story's eponymous main character, is a kitten teased by a mouse. While pursuing him she bumps her head on a cupboard. She then wraps a duster about her head, and sits before the fire "looking very ill". The curious mouse creeps closer, is captured, "and because the Mouse has teased Miss Moppet—Miss Moppet thinks she will tease the Mouse; which is not at all nice of Miss Moppet". She ties him up in the duster and tosses him about. However, the mouse makes his escape, and once safely out of reach, dances a jig atop the cupboard.

Not wanting to expose children to the cruelty of the real world, Potter shies away from reality and has the kitten catch and wrap up the mouse, then play with it. Accordingly, the mouse escapes out of a hole in the duster thereby avoiding his demise.
